At Backblaze, we provide unlimited storage to our customers for only $5 per month, so we had to figure out how to store hundreds of petabytes of customer data in a reliable, scalable way—and keep our costs low. After looking at several overpriced commercial solutions, we decided to build our own custom Backblaze Storage Pods: 67 terabyte 4U servers for $7,867. What we actually provide for our customers is online backup for home and business online backup for work.

Our hope is that by sharing, others can benefit and, ultimately, refine this concept and send improvements back to us.
